D/W is unclipped and covered with a protective wrapper.Red covers with gold design and lettering on front cover and spine. Decorative end papers. The fourteen tales in this selection from the works of Hans Anderson include favourites like The Snow Queen, The Ugly Duckling, The Tinder Box, The Emperor's New Clothes and, of course The Little Mermaid, together with one or two of the shorter, less well-known stories such as The Darning Needle and The Shirt Collar. Edward Ardizzone had always wanted to illustrate a collection of his favourite Hans Anderson stories, and with this lovely book he has fulfilled that wish. His black and white drawings show how well he understands the moods of characters, his colour work, soft and subtle, is superb; beautiful and haunting. In all a most delightful book in excellent condition.
